Two drown after falling through ice
Cellphone, candles save one man's life
By Robin MacLENNAN, Monday, January 30, 2006
A 22-year-old Barrie man who fell off the back of a dirt bike as it plunged into Lake Simcoe early Sunday morning pulled himself out of the water and used his cellphone to call 911.
He then sat on the ice for about four hours, waiting for help.
His two Friends who were driving the bikes when they hit a four-foot pressure crack in the ice at about 4 a.m., however, drowned in the deep water between Snake Island and Fox Island.
“I think he was just a little closer to the ice when they went in, and he was able to scramble out,” said York Regional Police Det. Rod RAMAGE.
The man, who was travelling with a survivor kit including a flashlight, candles and a cellphone wrapped in plastic inside his backpack, lit a fire on the ice to keep warm while waiting for rescue workers.
He was found by Innisfil firefighters at about 7: 45 a.m. and transported to shore in an air boat.
He was treated at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for hypothermia, and police said “he'll be perfectly Okay.&rdquo
Emergency crews searched the lake near Innisfil unsuccessfully for about four hours, struggling to locate the man.
“Phone reception in the area wasn't that good and he didn't know exactly where he was,” South Simcoe Police Sgt. Brian MILLER said. “It was pretty dark out there and difficult to find him.&rdquo
The bodies of the other men were recovered by York Regional Police divers at about 3: 30 p.m., and identified as Brian DWYER, 22, of Innisfil and Randal HILTS, 22, of Bradford.
Police said the men left an Innisfil home at about 3 a.m., eventually venturing out across the ice after “joy-riding” along the shoreline.
“The surviving witness was uncertain where they went out onto the ice because they had been riding up and down the shore area for quite a while,” said Det. RAMAGE.
Riding motocross motorcycles without headlights, RAMAGE said the three “were doing the typical things that 22-year-old boys do when they get out on their motorcycles in an area where they don't have to worry about other vehicles.
“They were all over hill and dale,” RAMAGE said.
“It is my understanding they were doing their motocross activities in around the shore, on and off the ice in the shallow area, for about an hour before they decided to head across the lake.&rdquo
The trio of Friends was riding tandem across thin ice between Fox Island and Snake Island when their vehicles went into open water, police said.
They were “going for a drive around the area there, and had no specific plan to go anywhere.&rdquo
Investigators cautioned residents not to drive onto unsafe ice.
“You have to be aware of the conditions that exist and the thickness of the ice and if you're not familiar, don't go out,” York Regional Police Inspector Norn MILES cautioned. “Unfortunately, we've had a lot of these incidents over the years and they're tragic for everyone.&rdquo
Onlookers gathered at the shore off Innisfil Beach Park, straining to watch rescue efforts happening a few kilometers out in the lake.
“It's too bad; you hate to see it,” Bill ANDREWS said. “Probably young guys doing something foolish.&rdquo
Police said alcohol may have been a factor in the drownings.
Ice conditions in the area are described as unsafe because of recent warm temperatures and rain. A steady downpour drenched rescuers and those who watched from shore Sunday, as water pooled on the lake, turning ice into slush.
“I wouldn't go out there for anything right now,” ANDREWS said, shaking his head. “Just look at the conditions.&rdquo

2 motorcyclists die in icy plunge
Survivor drifts on Lake Simcoe ice
Officials warn about unsafe conditions
By Robin MacLENNAN, Special To The Star With files from Astrid POEI
Innisfil, Ontario -- An Innisfil man spent four terrifying hours drifting on Lake Simcoe's treacherous ice overnight yesterday after the two Friends he was with plunged through a pressure crack on their motorcycles and drowned.
The 22-year-old survivor struggled to light candles and use a flashlight and keep in touch with police using the cellphone he'd brought along in an emergency survival pack, but rescuers said it was nip and tuck.
"Phone reception in the area wasn't that good and he didn't know exactly where he was," South Simcoe Police Sgt. Brian MILLER said, speaking of the challenge facing rescuers in locating the man.
"It was dark and difficult."
Police said they were not sure if the survivor, a passenger on one of the bikes, managed to jump off as it hit the metre-wide pressure crack in the ice at about 4 a.m. He might have climbed out of the water.
The drivers -- Brian DWYER, 22, of Innisfil and Randal HILTS, 22, of Bradford -- went down with their bikes and drowned in the deep water between Snake Island and Fox Island. Their bodies were later recovered by York Regional Police divers.
Police and fire officials have cautioned residents to stay off the ice on area lakes and rivers, especially with the region's recent cycles of thaws and freezes.
"You have to be aware of the conditions that exist and the thickness of the ice and if you're not familiar, don't go out," York Regional Police Insp. Norn MILES cautioned. "Unfortunately, we've had a lot of these incidents over the years and they're tragic for everyone."
Police said the survivor, who was travelling with a survivor kit and cellphone wrapped in plastic inside his backpack, attempted to gain some warmth by lighting candles while waiting for rescue workers. He was found by Innisfil firefighters at about 7: 45 a.m. and transported to shore in an airboat. He was treated at noon at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for hypothermia, abrasions and bruises, and police said "he'll be perfectly Okay." The identity of the survivor has not been released.
Emergency crews searched the lake near Innisfil unsuccessfully for about four hours, struggling to locate the man on the lake's frozen expanses.
Police said the men left an Innisfil home at about 3 a.m., eventually venturing out across the ice after "joy-riding" along the shoreline.
"The surviving witness was uncertain where they went out onto the ice because they had been riding up and down the shore area for quite a while," said York Regional Insp. Rod RAMAGE.
The three, who RAMAGE said were riding motocross motorcycles without headlights, "were doing the typical things that 22-year-old boys do when they get out on their motorcycles in an area where they don't have to worry about other vehicles.
"They were all over hill and dale, probably doing doughnuts and popping wheelies along the way," RAMAGE said. "It is my understanding they were doing their motocross activities in around the shore, on and off the ice in the shallow area, for about an hour before they decided to head across the lake."
The trio of Friends was riding tandem across thin ice between Fox Island and Snake Island when their vehicles went into open water, police said.
They were "going for a drive around the area there, and had no specific plan to go anywhere."
Onlookers gathered at the shore off Innisfil Beach Park, straining to watch rescue efforts happening near the middle of the lake.
"It's too bad, you hate to see it," said Bill ANDREWS. " Probably young guys doing something foolish."
Police said alcohol might have been a factor in the drownings.
Ice conditions in the area are described as unsafe because of recent warm temperatures and rain.
A steady downpour drenched rescuers and those who watched from shore yesterday as water pooled on the lake, turning ice into slush.
"I wouldn't go out there for anything right now," ANDREWS said, shaking his head. "Just look at the conditions."

Officer who shot Dudley GEORGE dies
DEANE killed in accident on 401
He was scheduled to testify at inquiry
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Kenneth DEANE, the elite Ontario Provincial Police paramilitary officer convicted of fatally shooting Indian activist Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE, was killed on the weekend in a traffic accident on Highway 401 in eastern Ontario.
DEANE, 45, was in charge of a four-man sniper team late at night on September 6, 1995, with the job of escorting the force's crowd management unit, or riot squad, as it marched toward about three dozen protestors outside Ipperwash Provincial Park.
Police marched on the park at night two days after Stoney Point Indians occupied the park, saying it contained sacred burial grounds. Their claims were later supported by documents released by the federal government.
DEANE, nicknamed "Tex" by colleagues, was expected to be called as a witness next month at the Ipperwash inquiry before Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN in the town of Forest, near the now-closed park.
The mandate of the inquiry is to probe events surrounding GEORGE's death, and to draft recommendations to prevent similar deaths in the future.
"He did wrong, but the family has always said that he shouldn't be the scapegoat," GEORGE family lawyer Murray KLIPPENSTEIN said.
"The family thinks the inquiry can still do its very important job very well," KLIPPENSTEIN said.
The inquiry has heard 101 witnesses: since it began hearings in July 2004.
Sam GEORGE, Dudley's brother, said in an interview yesterday that he felt bad when he heard of the death, which happened on Saturday afternoon during a whiteout on Highway 401 near Prescott.
"Any life lost is a tragedy," Sam GEORGE said. "I feel badly for his family."
DEANE is the third police officer involved in the massive police operation at Ipperwash to die in a traffic accident.
Sgt. Margaret EVE was hit by a transport truck on Highway 401 near Chatham in June 2000, while Insp. Dale LINTON, the officer who activated DEANE's unit that night, was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Smiths Falls in October 2000.
The Ontario Provincial Police said that DEANE was killed by a tractor-trailer at about 1: 15 p.m. on Saturday.
DEANE was driving a westbound Ford Explorer, and was attempting to steer around vehicles when he struck the back of a stopped tractor-trailer unit. A second tractor-trailer was unable to stop and struck his Explorer. DEANE was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger, who has not been identified, was taken to Brockville General Hospital with serious injuries.
Sam GEORGE, who never spoke to DEANE, said he would have been a valuable witness at the public inquiry.
"We needed to know why he thought he was there that night," Sam GEORGE said. "Who told him to go there? What he was told, and what was his mission… Now, we'll never know."
DEANE was found guilty of criminal negligence causing death in April 1997.
Provincial Judge Hugh FRASER ruled then that Dudley GEORGE, 38, was unarmed when he was shot, and that DEANE's fellow officers doctored their evidence to support him.
That trial, held in the Sarnia courthouse, heard that GEORGE had a bullet wound in his right calf, consistent with him being shot in the back of the leg, and another bullet wound that punctured a lung.
After being found guilty of shooting GEORGE, DEANE was given a conditional sentence of two years less a day, to be served outside jail, plus community service. At the time of the shooting, DEANE was a senior officer in the paramilitary Tactics and Rescue Unit, which carried sub-machine guns with night-vision scopes.
DEANE hung on to his job for 5½ years after the criminal conviction, as he unsuccessfully appealed the verdict to the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
Once his appeals were exhausted, he faced disciplinary charges under the Police Services Act.
In September 2001, he told a disciplinary hearing: "I sincerely apologize to the family and Friends of Dudley GEORGE and to his community for causing the terrible loss that they have been forced to endure."
However, under cross-examination, he said his apology did not mean that he admitted doing anything wrong in the park that night, when he and six other Ontario Provincial Police officers fired upon Indian protestors.
Former Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Thomas O'GRADY told the public inquiry last fall that he now believes that all of the Indian protestors were unarmed.
Prosecutor Denise DWYER asked DEANE at his 2001 disciplinary hearing if he felt he was justified in opening fire.
"That was my belief that night," DEANE replied.
"And it remains your belief today?" DWYER continued.
"Yes it does," he replied.
At those Police Services Act hearings in late 2001, DEANE's lawyer, Ian ROLAND argued that, apart from Ipperwash, DEANE had had a stellar 16-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police.
ROLAND noted that DEANE had risen since the night of GEORGE's death to become the force's top bomb and anti-terrorist weapons expert. ROLAND also noted that many political commentators blamed the former Conservative provincial government for the bloodshed at Ipperwash.
"Acting Sergeant DEANE didn't make the decision for the Ontario Provincial Police to be involved and cannot be held responsible for the damage that flowed from the incident," said ROLAND, calling dismissal a "professional death sentence."
However, when she ordered DEANE off the force, adjudicator Loyall CANN, former deputy chief of the Toronto force, called DEANE's conviction "the most serious" ever recorded against the Ontario Provincial Police.
"What could possibly be more shocking to society than to have a sworn, fully trained and experienced police officer, while on duty, in full uniform, using a police-issued firearm, kill an unarmed citizen?" she asked in her 28-page ruling.
"This is further aggravated by the fact that the sworn police officer was found by the presiding criminal court justice to have concocted and fabricated his evidence.
"I find that this is one of those exceedingly tragic incidents in which one act of negligent behaviour has totally nullified an otherwise promising career," she said, ordering DEANE off the force in January 2002 for discreditable conduct because of his criminal conviction.
In his April 1997 criminal trial, DEANE testified that he fired after observing muzzle flashes indicating that the protestors were firing at officers -- and that he saw a man in a half-crouched position holding a rifle and scanning the police.
He also gave a detailed description of the rifle.
But DEANE was found guilty after another officer who had been standing close to him at the time testified that he did not see any muzzle flashes, other than his own, and that he observed "a pole or stick" in GEORGE's hand.
DEANE had fired seven shots that night -- four at other natives and three at GEORGE.
After losing his job, DEANE worked in security with an Ontario Hydro nuclear station.
